Sulgrave was the location of many of the popular annual V8 Register dinners in the 1980s and 90s.
Sulgrave is a popular South Northamptonshire conservation village situated in undulating countryside close to the North Oxfordshire border. The Star Inn is over 300 years old and lies close to Sulgrave Manor, the ancestral home of the first president of the United States, George Washington. It is also the only English public house known to have been frequented by the legendary actor John "Duke" Wayne.

On a visit to Sulgrave in 1889 the honourable William Taft, Chief Justice of America said, "Sulgrave is a charming little spot only hidden in the loveliness of its seclusion, with the old Star inn by the roadside a relic of bygone days when comforts were plain and ale was plenty".
